    LYRICS
    Some men war in the desert heat
    Daddy fought hard so his kids could eat
    Working metal in a mill on industrial street
    We’re still waiting on his purple heart

    He took shrapnel in the shoulder when that forklift failed
    Hydraulics went out and he lost that bail
    Said he can still taste the way that furnace smelled
    When he was bleeding on the factory floor

    The American way
    Bottle rockets in the air on Independence Day
    Working harder for a dollar so we all can pay
    To die the American way

    Union went on strike back in ‘89
    With his good left arm he help a cardboard sign
    12 hours a day on that picket line
    Asking cars to honk their horns

    The American way
    Bottle rockets in the air on Independence Day
    Working harder for a dollar so we all can pay
    To die the American way

    Who’s to hate when we’re all the same
    God don’t bet on football games
    They’ll all kneel down and start to pray

    A couple months back they sent brother home
    PTSD and a VA loan
    The old man and he could never get along
    If it weren’t for that bottle of pills

    The American way
    Bottle rockets in the air on Independence Day
    Working harder for a dollar so we all can pay
    To die the American way
    Bottle rockets in the air on Independence Day
    Working harder for a dollar so we all can pay
    To die the American way
    Working harder for a dollar so we all can pay
    To die the American way Show less
